Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

Happy Birthday Grams!IMG 1967 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

Ben and I headed to my grandma’s house for a small party for her 86th birthday. My mom surprised her with a small mariachi group that serenaded her.IMG 1935 800x600 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

She started crying she was so happy!IMG 1933 800x600 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

If you live in the Whittier area and need a small mariachi group email me and I can pass on their contact info.IMG 1944 800x600 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

I stole some of Ben’s green chili and cheese tamale while we enjoyed the show.IMG 1929 800x600 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!IMG 1928 800x600 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

After a great round of ‘Volver’ and other favorites it was time for birthday cake. We got a red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.IMG 1964 800x600 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

I had a piece, but I don’t think red velvet is my thing. (I know that’s crazy to some of you!)IMG 1977 800x600 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

We took the dogs for a short walk before heading home.IMG 1983 800x600 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

But, before we left the neighborhood Ben made it clear he wanted more tamales. So, I let him see my Cuca…IMG 1980 800x600 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

Cuca’s has great tamales and you can buy them by the dozen.IMG 1981 800x600 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

A dozen tamales makes dinner easy – heat, top with a fried egg and eat!IMG 1994 800x600 thumb Happy Birthday to my Grandma!

Ben and I are going to cuddle and watch movies for the rest of the evening. Even though I’m sad to not be running this weekend, I’m so happy that I finally get to spend a weekend at home!

    :) happy birthday to your abuelita! I know you think red velvet might not be your thing but TRUST me when i say that you have to try SusieCake’s! It is NOTHING compared to the other cakes that pretend to be red velvet. They have a couple of locations throughout california and are giving away free cupcakes if you like their facebook page. My world has never been the same…..sigh.

    I don’t get the whole red velvet thing either. It doesn’t taste like anything. Although the buttercream frosting rocks.

    Happy Birthday to Grandma! She’s so cute.

    86 years…she looks great! What a sweet smile she has, too :)

    I’m not a big cake person, but red velvet is actually one of the flavors that I DO love. Go figure! If you’ve ever been to the famous Crumbs Bake Shop in NYC, they have a delicious red velvet cupcake, amongst many others of course.

    “Feliz cumpleanos to your Grandma!!” :)

    I thought it was weird when my hubby asked me to cook a runny egg for the top of his tamale…but after I tasted it…NOT so weird!! Soo GOOD!! :)

    Love mexican music…”volver, sabor a mi!”

    enjoy your weekend! :)

    LOL! Was that a tombstone candle on your Grandma’s cake?? ;) (It kinda looked like it from the back!) She’s a cutie pie! Happy birthday to her – thanks for letting us share in the mariachi and the fun!
